Thoughts on darkness

One:

What came into existence was Life, and the Life was Light to live by. The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness; the darkness couldn’t put it out. (John 1:4-5 Msg)

Not your own darkness; not the Devil’s. You’re safe.

Two:

If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand – shine! (Matthew 5:15-16 Msg)

If this sounds at all daunting, see (1).
